3-D Coming At You

The movie guys at Salon.com discuss the next wave of 3-D movies.


Because I was born with strabismus (aka crossed eyes), I don’t see in 3-D at all, so I can’t enjoy a 3-D movie, either, whether I wear the special glasses or not. So I hope that if they release these films in 3-D, they will be available to those of us who are dimensionally challenged without getting all blurry.

A lot of people ask me what it’s like to have monocular vision; they want to know how I can drive a car without being able to judge distances and so forth. I don’t know; never having had it, I don’t miss it. And it never hindered my ability to fly an airplane when I was taking flying lessons, although I doubt I could get a commercial pilot’s license. I suppose if I woke up tomorrow with binocular vision, I’d bump into the furniture.
